First, can we take a moment to look at the before pictures? Wood paneling. Dark cabinets that half cover the window. A drop ceiling. Linoleum floors. These pictures were taken when we closed on our house. Now, a little over a year later, we've finished the slow, beautiful process of updating!!
We drywalled, painted, tiled the main wall, laid bamboo flooring, removed the drop ceiling, raised and painted cabinets etc. etc. etc. I'll just re-add the ones that show the kitchen before/after at the same angles. It's been a rewarding process.
What's your favorite part? Mine is just how much bigger everything looks when it's painted white. Delish.
